Last night the Napa Valley Vintners and community members gathered at Clos Pegase to celebrate the winery's recent receipt of the Great Wine Capitals 'Best of Wine Tourism' Art & Culture award.
Chosen from a combined 56 regional winners from each city of the Great Wine Capitals Global Network, the award recognizes owners Jan and Mitsuko's commitment to make Clos Pegase a temple of art and wine, sharing not only their wine, but their personal art collection with their customers.
A visit to Clos Pegase is an enlightening and enjoyable experience, with figures from Greek and Roman mythology – from Pegasus to Bacchus and Gaia – making continual appearances in the art and architecture of the winery, and the cave theatre.
“The integration of art and culture with the creation of outstanding wines is a lifelong passion for the owners of Clos Pegase,” said Bill Dodd, Napa County Supervisor and chair of the regional GWC committee. “Their contribution to what makes Napa Valley legendary is highly regarded.”
